The upcoming school year is filled with uncertainty. But thanks to local nonprofit Project 150, at least hundreds of local high school students won’t have to wonder where they’ll get the school clothes and supplies they need most.

Project 150 is kicking off the school year by hosting a free back-to-school teen shopping event at its Betty’s Boutique from Aug. 10 to 21. Any high school student with a valid high school student ID can shop for new clothes, shoes, school supplies and hygiene products in the boutique located at 3600 N. Rancho Drive.

The shelves have been stocked with stylish brands like Levi’s and Citizens of Humanity. Space is limited, so students must register at https://www.project150.org/events.

“We’re grateful for the continued support to help disadvantaged high school students in our community,” said Kelli Kristo, Project 150 executive director. “This is a critical time for them, and we must ensure they have the support that they need to start the school year – virtual or in-person – with confidence and with the supplies they need.”

Project 150 provides homeless, displaced and disadvantaged high school students with basic necessities. It is in constant need of donated clothing, shoes and heavy-duty backpacks, as well as school supplies, hygiene items and accessories.
